Census forms will be mailed in mid-March, when most retirees will not yet have returned to Minnesota. Moorhead residents should not fill out the form in the state they are visiting, and instead should ask for a form when they return to Moorhead.

According to federal government resources, each resident who fills out a census form is responsible for bringing as much as $14,000 back to the state over 10 years.

Up-to-date census information will be available at www.cityofmoorhead.com.
